Looking at the current Philadelphia 76ers roster immediately shows that this isn't your 2012-13 Sixers.
After making a number of moves during the 2013 NBA draft and allowing players to leave via free agency, most recently center Andrew Bynum, who signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia also traded their best player in Jrue Holiday for Nerlens Noel after he was drafted by the New Orleans Pelicans. Now, the 76ers are looking to rebuild their team around younger players as well as more experienced starters.
The Holiday trade was proof that Philadelphia is looking to start over, which means general manager Sam Hinkie needs to look at what he has on the roster and make sure he has the best players on his roster.
These particular power rankings are based on who means the most to the 76ers at this time, and do not take into account current free agents who may end up coming back to Philadelphia. However, it does include players (such as Noel) who were acquired in draft-day trades but have not been officially signed.
For the younger players, it's important to consider the upside they have, and although they may not be the best players right out of the gate for Philadelphia, they could gain value and skill over the course of the season and may become more valuable to the team than some fans think.
